Well done .... drive more worry less. I regularly run it to 0 range but it's a stretch to get to say 812 miles or 1300 km. I top off nose up and the most I have ever put in that 70 litre tank has been say 68 but I'm sure the filler neck has say 3 or 4 litres in it. I don't remember but from memory (which can be a little shaky!) "zero range" has something like a 6.5 litre reserve so there is your cooling .... drive more worry less! YOU ARE MY HERO. Kramer would be proud!

Same experience as 740GLE! Our best tank before Mod was 47 MPG, but typically 43 MPG. We just did a long trip after the fix and got 45 mpg. So the Mod actually improved for us.

The OP got 50 MPG on his 900 mile tank!

Filled up the car today. 729 miles and 16.122 gallons and 50 miles DTE. So about 45 mpg. This suggests that I underfilled on the 900 mile fillup, and didn't actually get 50 mpg previously. Likely I was a gallon or so short of full fill. My fuel gauge didn't go to full after the previous fill also, which led me to believe my MPG on the 900 mile tank was optimistic.

My best was 1,055 when "Low Fuel" Light came on. Hartford to West Palm Beach. I probably had another 75-85 miles left but wasn't going to risk it.

DAMN... My highest tank was 700.6 which I did yesterday... Too bad I can't seem to drive slower than 75-80 MPH on my way to work.

On the Gen 2 cars, the manual will always be king of the tank wars with the lighter 17" rims to boot, gearing and losses (pumps) of the DSG will always have a 1/4% higher loss.

Oh and did you know the damage you caused to that HPFP by doing that? I'm amazed it didn't grande out of the engine bay thru the bonnet to the next county never to be seen again.

When I had the Passat, I had several 800+ tanks. All ranging from 16.302 - 17.010 gallons for refill. It seems to be quite the stretch to get a DSG car to the magical 900 mile mark. I only came close twice, theoretically, as I filled up early due to convenience.

734 mile tank - took 14.743 gallons - 49.8mpg
533 mile tank - took 10.665 gallons - 50.0mpg

Had I maintained those numbers for the full 17.x~ gallons, I would have hit the upper end of the 89x's.


Now I'm in the low low 20's, and loving every second of it :P

Fine, your S2000 trumps my NMS.
Until I factor in the two child car seats over the fuel tank.

Hah, I'm Jealous...
